About Us

We have been helping companies to get the best from their IT for over 25 years.

ActiveIT has been providing IT services and IT support since 1998 in the south, the south-west and the midlands.

We work closely with our clients to provide them with dependable IT systems that enhance their business, and act as their “Trusted IT Partner”.

Cybersecurity Experts

At ActiveIT, we’re not just cybersecurity enthusiasts—we’re certified experts.

Accredited to both the Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus schemes, our commitment to robust cybersecurity is unwavering.

The Cyber Essentials scheme evaluates key controls, and our 12-month certificates showcase our continuous dedication.

The Cyber Essentials Plus scheme goes a step further, subjecting us to a thorough technical audit by government-accredited professionals to ensure our declared controls are not just on paper but actively in place.

Our Microsoft Silver Partner status, earned through stringent assessments, also places us in the top 5% of Microsoft Partners Network-connected companies.

Harnessing The Power of IT

We believe that technology should enhance business, making it easier to deliver a service or produce goods.

IT should be seamlessly integrated into business operations so that it is an asset rather than an overhead and certainly not a liability.

The ActiveIT team consists of a core UK team backed up by partners in New Zealand who enable us to provide true 24/7 support and that personal touch, which is so important

Chris Sewell

Managing Director

Chris is the founder of ActiveIT, started back in 1998, the same year as Google was born.

Originally an electronics design engineer, Chris moved into IT during the 1990s and became a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer. He then spent several years “on the tools” himself, supporting clients all over the UK, before deciding to expand the business by taking a back seat and setting up a team of engineers to support the growing customer base. Now settled into the MD role, Chris keeps his eye on all the company’s activities, guiding and mentoring his trusted team.

Fun fact: Chris loves the outdoors; whether it is out on the water in his boat during the summer, mountain biking in the Forest of Dean or walking with his partner Tracey and their beloved dog Ted, he is happiest outside.
